Autism Advocates in the Philippines Discuss Need for Support Services

Posted: Friday, July 23, 2010 - 10:00


Valerie Paradiz, PhD, who works with the Autism Society of America, was recently interviewed by the Autism Society Philippines. She was specifically asked how parents and other caregivers could advocate for legislation for their children with autism. The interview was in conjunction with the National Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation (NDPR) Week to promote barrier-free access for all persons with disabilities.

The point Paradiz made was, “In general, persons with autism do not need structural accessibility. But yes, they need other ‘infrastructures’ for their effective integration into mainstream society. Particularly, there is a need for more infrastructures for individuals with autism across the life span.” Pardiz talked about parent and peer involvement in the advocacy process. She also talked about the importance of including people with autism in the advocacy process – to take them to meetings with legislatures and to involve actual stories in legislative appeals.
